These shoes are extremely comfortable, especially if you have a wide foot. However, all reviews are correct, after a few wearings they rip apart at the center seam. Too bad.

Beautiful and comfortable! You definitely need to buy this shoe. It's extremely comfortable and makes your foot look dainty/sexy/beautiful! I bought the nude for vacation and it was perfect - it matches everything and dresses outfits up!

I love these shoes! They are my go-to summer sandals. My first pair survived a rough and tumble summer and I was bummed out I had to bid them farewell. But, as fate would have it, I was at the doctor's office and another patient had them on! She said she "just ordered them" on Zappos! I ordered another pair on line the same day. I hope they stock these forever! They are awesome!

Such a beautiful and comfy shoe! Sadly, not wide enough for me, so had to return them.

What happened to your other colors in Gayle, size 4? Champagne? Gold? With the exception of Gayle, I fear that Athena Alexander is lowering it's standards by resorting to more and more man-made materials. Do they not understand that the customer will pay more for a comfortable leather shoe? I am doubly disappointed because I wear a size 4, and Athena is one of the few companies that even makes a size 4. But if the size 4 hurts my foot, the correct size does not help. Please, AA, bring back more of your Gayle leather slides and give us more like it. Read the reviews here, at Nordstrom and others--women love the Gayle slide. Enough already with thongs; thongs rub a lot of feet, so limit that style to a couple, not a half dozen! And stop with the vinyl/plastic uppers; we want leather that moves with our feet. You can't make a shoe that fits every foot but you can give us a material (leather) that MOVES with every foot. Why don't you get this? Why do you want to turn your wonderful shoe line into "Cinderella's of Boston"? quality? We loved you before. Come back to us. Leather uppers!

So disappointing. Do not buy this shoe. It runs 3 to 4 sizes small. I ordered an 11 and my friend who wears a 9 couldn't fit into my "11".

The shoe fits well and is easy to walk in, but the way the rhinestones are applied looks cheap. I needed them for in event the day they arrived so I kept them. Otherwise I would have returned them.

I love Athena Alexander sandals. This is the 4th or 5th pair I've owned. They are very comfortable and I am able to be a couple of inches taller (I am 5' 2 1/2" tall) and still keep up with my husband (over 6') while we are running through airports. I bought this pair for everyday wear and they are perfect, comfortable and very stable, even in wet conditions.

So disappointed. These are very cute and quite comfortable support-wise, but they are way too narrow! Gotta send 'em back.

I bought these for my upcoming wedding. Wearing them around the house they are very comfortable and fit well. The color looks like the picture (silver) and they fit true to size.

Cute shoe and soft upper would be comfortable if they fit. Also lightweight which is nice for wearing and packing/traveling. I wish they made these in half sizes and/or wide width. I'm borderline "wide" and can usually get away with a medium width if I order 1/2 size up. These don't have 1/2 sizes but I tried anyway. Just a little too tight. Bummer. They're going back.

True to size. This color not very well made, but comfortable. The ivory ones are better quality (I ordered this shoe in two colors). Not sure why color would make a difference. Had a small tear when I received them and Zappos immediately took care of the issue, sending me a new pair. They are holding up well and cozy!

I was looking for a cute, comfortable shoe, with not too much "bling!" to wear to a formal birthday party next month. This one fit the bill. It's very cute in person. Unfortunately, the color clashes with my dress. Besides that, try as I might, I just can't walk in slides.

Back again buying another 2 pairs in Pewter (have worn out 3 pairs of Pewter already), and in Champagne size 8. Live in Florida and this shoe can be worn dressed up or down. Perfect wedge (not too much of an incline if you have back issues) and just enough to give you a little bump up. I wear these shoes every day! Super comfortable! Runs a half size smaller than usual. Normally wear a size 7 1/2, but in these, a size 8 works perfectly. So pleased they keep these perfect shoes in stock. Hope they are never discontinued.

Cute shoe on, very comfortable to wear. The straps gap a little and do not lay flat against the arch of the foot. The foot bed is wide and fits a little sloppy. A half size smaller would do the trick, but shoe does not come in half sizes. Need to return.

Super cute and comfortable but terrible quality. Left shoe's center stitching just pooped apart after 4th wearing & plastic base color wears off with ever bump or ding to reveal a white color under the dark brown. Very disappointed because so cute and comfortable.

These say in the description they are leather, but I could tell immediately they are not.The sticker on the bottom says "synthetic upper and lining man made outsole." This is a change from all my other Athena Alexander sandals, and I have many. I first found this brand at Nordstrom and since I wear a hard to find 5, I was delighted. They fit great, had a wedge heel to give height but stability, and they are leather. I wonder if their quality is declining. The straps aren't as supple and the lining where you place your foot makes your foot stick, whereas with leather it seems to be much more comfortable on the sole of your foot. The style is cute and versatile, but I will be returning these.

These were extremely comfortable. I tried them on at the store, so I got a bigger size than normal. They were one of my favorite pairs of shoes. However, I had them for about 3 months - wore them probably once a week - and the middle ripped open. The threads were also popping/fraying at the seams.
